Vinca minor f. alba 'Gertrude Jekyll'
White 'periwinkle'. Mat forming, with glossy, dark green leaves creating the perfect contrast for the brilliant white, star-shaped flowers produced from mid spring onwards. Will thrive in sun or shade, but flowers better with more light.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Feed in spring with a good general fertiliser.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather.
